There has been a lot of geo-related news lately, and in part that's due to the ongoing release of new APIs, features, functionality, and data for mapping and location platforms. The latest news is the addition of the recently released StreetSide panoramas and enhanced Bird's Eye imagery to the Bing Maps API. A little over a week after these new features were added to Bing Maps they have now been exposed via several methods in the Bing Maps API (our Bing Maps API Profile).
A little over a month off of its pricing structure changes, location database-as-a-service company SimpleGeo has updated its SimpleGeo Places API with more data based on an earlier partnership with Factual. In addition to new data, there are new ways to access it, as well as some changes to the structure of the data returned, so if you've already built on the API you will want to take note.
